Injectable Dermal Fillers in Washington, MO

What Are Injectable Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers (or simply fillers) are often injected to create balance and restore a youthful appearance. They can be used to replace lost volume or provide structural support. Fillers are an effective, minimally invasive alternative for men and women desiring to even out fine lines, sagging skin, and/or wrinkles in order to restore balance and volume. They can also be coupled with other aesthetic treatments to provide a complete rejuvenation without going under the knife. Washington Skin Solutions offers JUVÉDERM®, RHA®, and Restylane® injections. To decide which fillers are right for you, we invite you to visit Washington Skin Solutions for a consultation, where our nurse will discuss various options as far as fillers and placement to customize a treatment plan in order to reach your goals.

What Are the Benefits of Dermal Fillers?

Injectable dermal fillers can treat several different concerns and provide several benefits for individuals, such as:

  • Restoring volume and providing structural support in order to create youthful balance.
  • Plump areas that have lost volume or to accentuate a desired feature such as lips.
  • Enhancing facial balance and symmetry to achieve your optimal structure.
  • Plumping and smoothing out regions with laxity or creases.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Injectable Dermal Fillers?

The best candidates for dermal fillers would be anyone seeking to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without having a surgical facelift. Typically, individuals with significant signs of aging or who have recently lost a significant amount of weight have areas on their faces that lack volume and shape. These attributes make them great contenders for injectable fillers. Fillers are also a great option for those who do not want to risk the scarring that can occur following a surgical facelift.

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

Before your injection procedure, our team will meet with you to learn more about your expectations and decide which product may best produce them. At the time of the actual procedure, we will use a topical or injectable numbing agent to make the injections as comfortable as possible. Hyaluronic Acid fillers are a gel substance that all have different qualities. Some will attract water and plump up more after being placed and others won't. During your consultation we will discuss all the options and our recommendations to achieve your goals. Keeping the desired result in mind, we may use multiple syringes during the procedure. The average full facial rejuvenation typically requires 1 syringe per decade of life.  

What Can I Expect After Dermal Fillers?

Injectable fillers are performed as an in-office procedure in a short amount of time. Due to the numbing agents, the process is typically only mildly uncomfortable and does not require much downtime. You can expect swelling or bruising initially, but these symptoms should dissipate within a few days. Results can last 3 months up to 2 years depending upon which product was used and where it was placed.

Fat Dissolvers

What Are Fat Dissolvers?

 Even a small amount of extra fat in the upper throat area could cause the presence of a "double chin" that can be bothersome to both men and women. The additional pockets of fat under the chin (or the submental area) can be caused by genetics, aging, or weight fluctuations that lead to a softer chin and jawline for a less defined profile. Washington Skin Solutions is proud to offer multiple techniques to get rid of fat at our office in Washington, MO.

The first option is KYBELLA®, which is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), as a nonsurgical treatment for submental fat. The active ingredient in KYBELLA is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid that acts similarly to the body's natural DA to dissolve and absorb fat cells.

The second option is nonsurgical fat removal with Agnes RF. The Agnes RF is a microneedling device that precisely delivers radiofrequency energy to the targeted area, like the jowls. This revolutionary technology doesn't damage the surrounding epidermis, tightens skin, and eliminates fat.

What Are the Benefits of Fat Dissolvers?

At Washington Skin Solutions, we are pleased to offer multiple fat-dissolving treatments to help you achieve a more defined look that eliminates unwanted fat. Benefits of KYBELLA and Agnes RF treatments performed at our Washington, MO facility include:

  • Noninvasive alternatives to surgical procedures
  • Fast visits that fit into your busy life
  • Quick outcomes that can offer you the appearance you've longed for
  • Overall enhancements to the aesthetic of your self-confidence

What to Expect from Fat Dissolvers

KYBELLA is performed during an appointment in one of our treatment rooms.  A member of our team will apply a numbing cream to the treatment area. Once the skin is numbed and cleaned, the injections will be placed in a specific pattern to allow for a consistent outcome. The treatment itself takes around 15 – 20 minutes and is comprised of multiple small injections into the area. It can take eight to sixteen weeks to see final results.

The Agnes RF microneedling procedure will be performed inside our facility using numbing injections to decrease discomfort. This procedure inserts a needle that radiofrequency energy is then delivered through to destroy the cell membrane on the fat molecule.  Some improvement is visible after treatment, but the effects will continue to improve over the next 12 weeks. 

Am I a Candidate for Fat Dissolvers?

At Washington Skin Solutions, fat dissolvers offer an effective solution to dealing with unwanted fat and provide a personalized approach to help you reach your aesthetic goals.

Wrinkle Relaxers in Washington, MO

What Are Wrinkle Relaxers?

A neurotoxin is a nonsurgical injectable treatment used to treat lines and creases that happen due to repeated muscle contractions. It can work to lessen signs of aging, such as forehead lines, Crow's feet surrounding the eyes, and vertical lines in between the brows. Neurotoxins are created from a partial molecule of a specialized strain of botulinum toxin, which temporarily blocks movement in the facial muscles. Over time, the presence of wrinkles is decreased as the skin is able to recover and renew on its own. At Washington Skin Solutions, we provide multiple kinds of wrinkle relaxers, including BOTOX®, DAXXIFY™, and Dysport®. Our team is highly experienced in achieving natural-looking outcomes with neurotoxin treatments at our Washington, MO location.

 

What Are the Benefits of Neurotoxins?

Furrows and creases on your forehead and between your eyes may make you appear older, unapproachable, or angry. Neurotoxins help diminish the appearance of such issues by temporarily preventing the ability to crease the muscles that form these lines. Neurotoxin treatments at Washington Skin Solutions provide further advantages for Washington, MO individuals, including:

  • Fast, nonsurgical treatment
  • Outcomes are natural-looking and can last for as long as 6 months
  • Addresses forehead wrinkles, Crow's feet, and frown lines between the brows
  • Creates a more refreshed, rested appearance.
  • No downtime is required following the appointment

Are Wrinkle Relaxers Ideal for Me?

Wrinkle relaxer treatments are a great option for individuals who are seeking to soften the look of wrinkles and creases high up on the face without undergoing a surgical procedure. In some cases, wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX®, are sought by younger people (including those in their 20s) who want to fend off signals of aging entirely. Nikki will highlight the details of every product and work with you to select the option that works best for your needs. If you have deep-set lines, a dermal filler might be offered to pair with your neurotoxins treatment.

What Is A Wrinkle Relaxer Treatment Like?

During a detailed examination at our Washington, MO practice, our nurse will determine which wrinkle relaxer treatment is ideal for you and your cosmetic goals. We provide wrinkle relaxer injections as an in-office procedure that can be done during the consultation if time allows. You may be told to make various facial expressions using the top part of your face. This allows us to administer the treatment in the correct area. We wash your skin and use a fine needle to administer the BOTOX, DAXXIFY, or Dysport injections. Based on the formula type and the number of injections, your procedure can last about 10 – 15 minutes.

What to Expect After Your Treatment

Following your wrinkle relaxer therapy, you may resume your normal routine; however, you will need to refrain from strenuous activities for at least 24 hours. For the first four hours, you will want to avoid placing pressure to the injected areas, as this has a chance to accidentally distribute the formula to other areas. The injection sites might appear flushed, slightly sore, or bruised, but these effects should subside within a few days. Based on the product we used, your outcomes may take up to two weeks to be seen. Many people enjoy results that last up to six months, but the actual length of your results could differ slightly based on the type and quantity of relaxer used. Before you leave our office, our staff will provide thorough post-treatment instructions and speak about when to come in for further appointments.

 

Refreshed, Rested, and Relaxed

At Washington Skin Solutions, our expert team is pleased to perform aesthetic neurotoxin injections, including BOTOX, DAXXIFY, and Dysport, to give our patients a refreshed look without invasive surgery or recovery time. We will discuss options and expected outcomes at your consultation appointment to develop a customized treatment plan in order to meet your goals.
